This spring, join RBML’s curators for another full slate of short talks!
We began on February 6 with Kimberly Springer (Curator for Oral History) in conversation with New York City poet and author Kurt Boone about the oral histories he conducted with family members experiencing mass incarceration.
On March 27, Michelle Margolis and Dani Rabner will talk about anti-fascist children’s drawings in the Zosa Szajkowski collection. Then, on April 24, Emily Rude (Curator for Medieval and Renaissance) and Kane Siegel (Rare Book Librarian) will discuss Original Copies, RBML’s Spring exhibition. In May, Melina Moe (Curator for Literature) will draw from the Random House records to talk about the remarkable collaboration between Angela Davis and Toni Morrison. And finally in June, Morgan Adams (Mellon Conservator for Special Collections), Emily ruined, and Jeffery Wayno (Collection Services Librarian) will talk about their work to reassemble a Book of Hours from the collections of Burke Library at Union Theological Seminary.
